Marine Protect, a specialist brand offered by National Transport Insurance, will cover Virgin Australia Supercars’ annual visit by to New Zealand this weekend, providing insurance to all 24 competing entries en route to the ITM Auckland SuperSprint.
The front and rear of the Truck Assist TEKNO Racing Holden Commodore of Jack Le Brocq will carry Marine Protect branding to mark the event.
The Combined Cargo cover for the journey protects all cars, tools, pit equipment, and spare parts, which will travel from Victoria’s Avalon Airport to Auckland on specialised car racks and in aviation certified containers, with the logistics organised through long-time series supplier Gibson Freight.
“We are excited at Marine Protect to be able to provide a comprehensive cargo policy to be covering all of the Virgin Australia Supercar Championship teams and their race equipment for the ITM Auckland SuperSprint,” said Andrew Kidd, head of Marine Protect at NTI. “As Australia’s leading marine insurer, we are protecting all supercars by providing the right cover in case something goes wrong in the journey across the Tasman Sea to New Zealand.”
Opening practice at Pukekohe Park Raceway kicks off at 12:05pm local time on Sept. 13.
